Did you know a large majority of businesses don’t last 15 years?
There are a number of reasons this happens, but almost all causes boil down to one of two things:
Now what causes these two occurrences? Typically, it’s an owner who didn’t take the time needed to work on the most important things in their business because they were too busy in the weeds putting out fires or struggling to let go.

Sales can be a daunting part of owning a business. None of us want to be that sleazy person that pushes people into buying from them.
But there is one thing that can drastically change how you approach sales and cure this potential problem:
Believing in your product.
Think about it: Does what you provide help people? If you believe it does, then you can approach selling by looking through that lens. You are helping someone improve their life in some way.
This week, Wojo and Peter share about how this works and also provide tons of other tips on how to become a rockstar at selling your product or service.
So if you want to overcome that uneasy feeling you get from approaching potential clients and start getting fired up about what you do so people will be itching to buy, this one’s for you!
Most of us are aware of “the work life balance”.
But how many people do you know who are able to achieve it?
If you’re in Lifeonaire, you probably know lots of people who are able because it’s something we teach people how to do. If not, you’re probably surrounded mostly by people who are juggling work, family life, hobbies, traveling, and time for themselves, and they're dropping things left and right.
Travis Parry is “the balance guy.” In fact, he runs his business on 25 hours of work a week and lives a full life with his wife and seven children.

Just wait. In this episode, Travis covers how you can approach work so that you too can cut to part time and not sacrifice income so you can actually have time for the life that you often have to set on the back burner.
Travis’ insight is so in line with Lifeonaire principles that if you’re already fascinated by what we have to say, you’re going to love the gold he’s here to share. This method of approaching life is bulletproof and can work wonders for ANYONE.
